The drought in recent years, has led to many parents being unable to send their Children to school. In Tanzania it is usually the parents who have to buy books and equipment for schoolchildren. The failure of the harvest in recent years has led to them being unable to send their children to school. The project aimed to get children from six of the villages where Palm Crosses are made in a position where they could go to school. £9,900 was sent to buy books and other equipment the children would need.
